Currently we can only see people by appointment from 12 to 4pm every day once you have applied for a dog and been approved.
Welcome to Pet Savers, Inc. in Shreveport, Louisiana. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to rescue, protect, and place abandoned or unwanted pets and provide funds for neutering, spaying, and other veterinary care.
We provide a safe, no-kill alternative to Animal Control. Our space is limited, however, and if pets are not being adopted fast enough we won’t have room to take on more.
Contacting us...Shelter hours
calling pet savers
Because of our huge call volume, we are not able to take calls or messages on our Pet Savers phone (318) 636-0400. We ask you to try using our website instead. But, if you are desperate to talk with someone, you can contact Karen (318) 347-6959 or Cindy (318) 294-2721, between 9 and 6. Speak SLOWLY and CLEARLY when leaving them a message and be sure your voicemail is set up and not full. TEXTING is easier for them. These people are all volunteers with careers or busy lives and are not AT the shelter. We are not equipped to respond to emergencies. Our staff and volunteers are limited as we are a small non-profit organization funded by your donations. Up to 75 DOGS, and 20 cats! We are governed by City zoning and licensed by Caddo Parish Animal Services.
Casual visits to the shelter are no longer feasible. We may be able to adopt by application through our online Adoption Application. Our pets are precious to us and we have big financial and emotional investments in them. We simply try to make the best match for both the person and the animal. Our current adoption fees are $90-$200 for dogs, and $65-$100 for MOST cats.
Call or email now for appointment.

Surrendering Your Pet
Pet Savers wants to save as many animals as possible. We are a limited intake shelter, so due to space and City zoning we are unable to accept every animal. We are almost always at capacity. 75 DOGS…25 CATS…that’s IT!
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT CATS…
We DO have cats to adopt, but we are limited on intakes.
There are now TWO “Cat only” rescues to contact in Shreveport: Shreveport Bossier Animal Rescue
Port City Cat Rescue
(See their Facebook pages).
Reach out to others to let them know you need to re-home your pet… a shelter is not usually the best place for it. The best thing for your animal is going from your home to another GOOD home.
We can give you ideas about screening applicants.
If you have a specific breed of pet, do a Google search for your breed’s rescue, e.g. Golden Retriever Rescue. Don’t worry about how far away it is.
We are not the only rescue in the area…just the largest…but we are still limited. For a complete list of local rescue organizations, call one of our Phone Volunteers and leave a message.
If you do want to bring us your pet for possible intake, you must call to see if you can make an appointment. We need as much pertinent information as possible and a texted photo. Weight, sex, spayed/neutered, house- trained, up to date on shots, heartworm preventive, good with dogs, kids, etc.

Nobody wants to talk about dying, but everybody does eventually. Most of us have wills. Some of us have no family.

Directions: From I-20 heading west. Take Pines Rd. exit (exit 10) and turn right (north). Take the first right (Greenwood Rd. – Rt. 80) and go about 1/2 mile to just beyond Shouse Collision Repair. Turn left on Noyes Rd. and go to the end.
Because many of the pets we save are strays, we cannot guarantee that they are house-trained, good with children, good with other pets, friendly or unfriendly. We simply don’t know their history unless the owners gave them up for adoption. But we feel all animals are deserving of a home and safe place to live, regardless of how large or small, cute or homely, perfect or disabled.
We rely on donations to keep up our work. If you can help us with donations or by volunteering, we welcome you. If not, we hope you will tell others about us. And thanks for visiting our web site!
Note: Please do NOT bring pets to the shelter without prior permission.
